Available soon from Hobbywing are the all-new Xerun 4268SD G2 and 4274SD G2 1/8th scale brushless motors. Designed especially for the use with the Xerun XR8 and XR8 Plus brushless controller, but also usable with the sensored speed controllers of other brands, the motors feature a built-in chip that allows the speedo to identify the motor in order to maximise the performance while allowing for smoother overall control. Also in combination with Hobbywing’s own controllers Turbo functions as known from the 1/10th scale boosted ESCs are possible in order to extract the maximum performance from the motor. The 4-pole motor is housed in a black anodised aluminium heatsink case with bi-directional timing adjustments, allowing to fine-tune the timing independent from the direction of rotation. Other features include an advanced, patented hall senor system for improved reliability, a 4-pole 8-magnet staggered pole low-cogging torque rotor as well as an O-ring sealed sensor port and gold-plated solder tabs. The 68mm long 4268SD G2 motor is available as 1600kv, 1900kv and 2600kv variant for off-road and on-road applications as well as longer 74mm version with 2250kv rating for off-road trucks.
Coming from Fenix Racing are the DFV2 electric brushless motors. Building on the popular DFV the version 2 offers a redesigned can with additional cooling openings for a lower operation temperature and more consistent performance over a run. Also new are an updated stator with improved wiring and a new epoxy-balanced rotor with 5mm front bearing and improved magnetic strength. Available as 13.5T and 21.5T variant the motors are built to meet EFRA specifications with the company currently seeking homologation for the 21.5T motor to make sure it is legal to race at the forthcoming Euros.
Following the respective modified variants Team Corally have now introduced the Dynospeed 3.0 Spec racing brushless motors. They utilise a machined T6 aluminium can with airflow openings, high-purity copper windings, heavy-duty solder tabs and sintered neodymium magnets. An improved stator design makes for high efficiency and the motors also sport dual sensor ports, adjustable timing and they comply with IFMAR, EFRA, BRCA and ROAR rules. The Spec motors are available in the four stock specific variants of 10.5T, 13.5T, 17.5T and 21.5T.
Coming soon from GForce is a 10.5T motor and 90A speed controller combo package for drift cars. The set includes the sensored Raijin 10.5T drift motor and the TS90A speed controller with the motor featuring large venting openings, a 3-piece aluminium motor can and an internal fan to lower the running temperatures. The included TS90A controller is highly adjustable, it sports turbo functions, a large heatsink and it is adjustable using GForce’s own Progbox programming device. The package will become available this month.
Team Corally have introduced the Dynospeed 3.0 MODX sensored brushless motor series. Based around a T6 aluminium can the motors feature a high airflow design, high purity copper windings, heavy duty solder tabs as well as sintered Neodymium magnets. Other features include adjustable timing and dual sensor ports. The high performance competition motors comply with IFMAR, EFRA, BRCA and ROAR rules and they are available in 3.5T to 10.5T modified variants.
Trinity have introduced Modified versions of their popular Revtech 24K Stock racing motors. Available in 2.5T Drag Racing, 3.5T to 5.5T off-road and 6.5T to 9.5T off-road variants the motors feature thicker pure copper solder tabs, infinite timing adjustment, grade 5 ball bearings and a special gold-colour anodising to make them stand out.
Maclan Racing have introduced their all-new MR8 series of 1/8th competition brushless motors. Designed from the ground up for 4S LiPo racing classes, the completely rebuildable motors feature a machined heatsink design can, oversized precision ball bearings, heavy duty solder tabs and and a sensored, fixed timing design. The MR8 is available in a 1950kv and a 2150kv variant.
Maclan Racing have introduced their all-new MRR 540-size sensored competition brushless motors. They are built using pure copper wire and feature a balanced sintered rotor, adjustable timing, a lightweight, vented CNC-machined 6061 all-aluminium can and precision ball bearings. The spec class MRR motor is designed to the maximum tolerance of the rules and the short stack design will produce a lower resistance allowing the highest performance possible. The motors utilise heavy-duty concave-shape soldering taps for easy wiring and they are available in 3.5T to 25.5T variants from March.
